Does anyone know where is the best reccomended botox hyperhidrosis treatment in Jakarta?

Hyperhidrosis is the condition characterized by abnormally increased perspiration, in excess of that required for regulation of body temperature. Hands, feet, axillae, and the groin area are among the most active regions of perspiration due to the relatively high concentration of sweat glands; however, any part of the body may be affected.

I guess nobody knows.  (+ info)

Is it normal not to pee after the hyperhidrosis surgery?

Please help!
My husband had a hyperhidrosis surgery today. He wants to pee but can't is it normal and how he can make it to pee?
Thanks a lot everyone.

Not normally.
But that also depends on where abouts on his body they performed the surgery.
He could be avoiding peeing because of the pain in his body. Or the most simplest answer is if he had pain killers specifically such as Morphine or Pethadine.
These have the side effect in some people of effecting temporarily the part of the brain that gives the signal for the bladder to relax and let go of the urine.

It does where off. But in the mean time he needs to void.

Try the running water trick while he's SITTING on the loo. He needs to relax as much as possible and NOT THINK about voiding. Run the water in a tap close by or even from a jug to bowl and back again. Keep it up as it can take a long time.
Give him a mag or book to read also.
Chat to him.
Anything to get his mind off of doing what he's there for.

If he still has trouble peeing in 6 hours or if his bladder is distended to the point where he looks as if he is pregnant then you need to get to the ER for him to have an in/out cathater placed.  (+ info)

How much do botox shot cost for palmer hyperhidrosis?

How much do botox shot cost for palmer hyperhidrosis?? Can they be free as a form of treatment??
Do you need to be insured in the USA?

How about in Canada??

They're anywhere from $10-14 EACH injection here in the US. You can seriously shop around with dermatologists to find a lower price.

You don't need to be insured but it would be helpful. You can pay out of pocket but you'll probably spend about $500 - $700.

Also Botox does show results, but they can fade anywhere from 1 month to 6 months.

It really just depends on if the doctor injects it into the right places and your body accepts the Botox. For some people it doesn't do anything for them. You just have to try it.  (+ info)

Any available treatments for Hyperhidrosis in the Philippines other than surgery?

I've been dealing with Hyperhidrosis since I was in elementary. I'm now in my early 20's and about to start my new chosen career. During the past, I've given up so many oppurtunities because of this. It has cost me a great deal of embarrassment and awkwardness. I've been
ridiculed so many times yet people don't seem to understand that it's beyond my control. Please help me anyone. The years I went through with this were horrible. I would really appreciate your replies to my concern.

botox injections  (+ info)

I am 18 and have severe hyperhidrosis of the armpits. What should I try?

I have suffered from hyperhidrosis since the age of 12. I used aluminum chloride for 4 years and it worked well, until one day it just quit. Since then I have tried oral medication, other types of antipersperints, and botox 3 times. Nothing seems to help. Surgery is not an option for me. Just wondered if anyone had any ideas in helping me with this daily struggle of hiding my sweat marks. Thanks.

I am 20 yrs old and I've suffered from hyperhidrosis of the feet, hands, and underarms since I was about 12 as well, and just recently I had botox injections in both my feet and underarms. Since it is really too soon to tell if the injections have worked, I really cannot comment on it.
But to address your question, the one deodorant that has helped me to a certain extent with this problem is called Mitchum. If you haven't already tried it, you may want to try it out to see if it gives you a little relief with the sweating.  (+ info)

How do I know it is just puberty or Hyperhidrosis?

I have sweaty hands and my mom and dad says its just puberty and ill just grow out of it but i think it is something worse like Hyperhidrosis... so how do I know?

Hyperhidrosis is quite rare so its not likely that you have it. How old are you? You are going through puberty when your hormones are in a state of flux. If you also have exams or are under any pressure then that could exacerbate the problem. Just relax and the chances are that it is something that you will grow out of  (+ info)

What do you think about dermatologists? can they help my hyperhidrosis problem?

I am having problems with hyperhidrosis. I was thinking about going to a dermatologist, instead of a regular family doctor, and was wondering if it was easy to schedule an appointment with them. Also, i was wondering if they are able to help with hyperhidrosis problems or if it would just be a waste of my money and time.

call one and ask if they treat that or not...or an endocrinologist...(hormones)...have you been checked for diabetes, hyperactive thyroid and the like?  (+ info)

Would stress pills help palmar and foot hyperhidrosis?

I heard that hyperhidrosis can be triggered with stress - this being my case. Whenever I am really calm my hands and feet are dry. But, whenever I become nervous they sweat like crazy. This is very embarrassing and uncomfortable. Would stress pills help with this?

It could. A friend of mine takes an anticholenergic drug to "dry him up."
It all depends on what brings on the hyperhidrosis. The problem with antianxiety pills is they could leave you in a constant fog.
Talk with your Dr. Good luck.  (+ info)

Why should you cut out grains and sugars if you have hyperhidrosis?

And what else will work to get rid of hyperhidrosis??? please help me! and i told my parents i had it but they kinda blew it off and forgot about it-they dont know it is a big problem. i need help reminding them about it but its embarassing. any ideas?

I'm not quite sure if you should cut out grains and sugars from your diet. It will be quite hard to cut these out of your diet. I believe you would need supplements. For this you should see a special doctor or nutritionist/dietition to see if grains and sugars are really affecting you via hyperhidrosis (HH).

And indeed it is a big problem (for me too), and you should talk to your parents about it more often about HH and how it's affecting you.

Here's link to alternative treatments:

Then there is the ETS surgery for HH.
If you hear the wonders of ETS, make sure you research it thoroughly before considering it. It may not be as wonderful as you think.

I hope this helps.  (+ info)

How could I cure hyperhidrosis at home?

Hyperhidrosis is excessive sweating on your hands, face, and underarms. What I'm worried about most is my underarms. I always have to wear sweaters to school because you can see the pit stains and it's so embarrassing. Yes, I wear deodorant and it doesn't always work. I've tried foot powder and after shower powder to see if it would absorb the sweat. That made it worse. I don't have time to go to the doctor right now so just for the next few days, I want to go to school wearing shirts without a sweater. Please help!!

Depends how bad it is. You should go for the highest aluminium concentration antiperspirants as you can get (see http://www.allaboutsweat.com) and for hands and feet you could get hold of a home iontophoresis kit.  (+ info)
